    Many of us are lucky enough to have the obvious choice when it comes to our own solution to the guns laws.....don't live there.

    You reap what you sow.

    Guns need ammunition, so if you can't take the guns, then reduce the supply of ammunition, or put on a tax that takes the price to $100 per bullet.

    Bit of a shame they bring in Gun control again so quickly. Very divisive issue and one that politicians seem to roll out consistently.

    Kid was a good shot with a hand gun, statistics prove its very hard to kill 9 people running like hell.

    More disturbing was the fact it was in a church- hope the kid likes hell, if there is a God thats where he will go.

    Not necessarily, if the god that exists is a different one to the one those people believed in eg the Muslim god, then the gun man will end up in heaven and the victims are currently burning in the fire.

    It's not really that ridiculous, many of my friends own guns for recreational use, However I have never been interested in recreational shooting because I don't want to pay $20 - $30 for each magazine I empty, Being ex army Rounds are something I couldn't bring myself to pay for.

    But I am a big fan of restrictions of firearms, especially for people living in cities, Rural landowners are a different story.
